ESEF Reporting Manual: Block Tagging
Creating the Annual Report
The bulk of the Annual Report are chapters with text and images, which do not require ESEF tagging. Also the Audit Report, Cover Page, Signatures, and so on. Prepare them with your office tools and export them as .pdf .html or .xhtml. The easyCOMPOSER tool combines them all, in order, along with the Financial Statements and Notes. This is the final Annual Report required by the ESEF format. Ready to be filed!
English, German, Spanish Reference
A final check for errors or warnings with the easyQC tool is recommended.
